      Jamaicans are naturally aggressive. No one can’t deny that..

      • Stephen Miller April 28, 2017 at 12:51 pm

        Isn’t that prejudice? Does their genetic makeup predisposes them to such behavior? Their society is very violent so maybe violence has been culturised to some extent but to classify an entire set of people as inherently violent seems extreme.How do you account for Trinidad being so violent and now the recent upsurge in violence in Barbados in recent years.

      So it is best they keep they aggression among themselves.

    Silly issues escalates to serious matters…. Why do ppl make it their business to scandal ppl name, tell lies in them, spread extra rumours about them and still try to befriend you at the same time! We need to check ourselves and adopt positive changes…. We have become an awful species!

    Why do you all think that all Jamaicans are sellers? And all of you that have nothing good to say should keep your mouth shut. Never have I seen such bitterness towards Jamaicans, we have Barbadian sellers all over the world. Just respect the dead and stop speculating. Regardless of where she is from , who she is or what she does, it’s another life gone. There is nothing to rejoice about. RIP.

    KAY CRITCHLOW….You amaze me. “Barbados needs cleaning up” is what you quoted. Look at the Crime statistics for all of the other Caribbean countries and see that Barbados has one of the highest safety records.

    • Jennifer April 28, 2017 at 1:32 pm

      @Kay Critchlow – Well said. But of what or whom??????????

    We run out the Guyanese but a lot of Jamaicans are here and seem to be opportunists

    While driving from the service station on Bay Street on Wednesday night there was a huge quarrel at the back of the Barbados turf club involving the prostitutes who work around there and those who work lower bay street. It was clear from the voices heard that it involved two Jamaicans, the amount of girls there had tragic at a crawl. I told the misses that this usually leads to murder between prostitutes in Jamaica having worked there and understanding them well. So I’m not at all surprised to hear what has happened. Prostitution needs to be regulated, or the laws related to it rigorously enforced. Though they don’t die weekly, this industry while unregulated is a hot bed for every category of crime. Our political, religious and community leaders need to lift their heads from the sand and collectively address this issue. It is here to stay and needs to be properly regulated or the law enforced. Yes these women need to educated, given meaningful opportunities to earn, or their offspring otherwise provided for. This is a regional problem as both women probably have their children back home depending on them. Now there may be two homes with children having no financial support and now motherless. These same children may now become future criminals or victims of underworld prostitution. This is how the cycle continues, we have a responsibility wherever and whenever we see this happening to raise our voices and effort to eradicate this.

    I’m jamaican and all I can say to the dead is rip and rip to these comments except for ricci khan and esther star
    Why do you Barbadians have so much hatred for us jamaican womend? Is it because we are loved by your men? Because my boyfriend is from Barbados and what we have here testified that no bajan woman every made him felt that way.

    • Biscuits May 4, 2017 at 1:05 pm

      RIP to the young woman. While I agree with you there is no need for some of the sentiment expressed here, there is also no need to mention ‘Bajan’ men having a preference for Jamaican women, as it also goes both ways.
      From years gone by, relationships between the two nationalties have been the norm .Not sure what circles you move in, but I can assure you that there are several thriving marriages between Bajan women and Jamaican men. It hopefully augurs well for regional harmony.

    This is very sad when any person is splash all over the newspaper after being killed in such a manner. “Picking fares” is never a nice thing , but only a few days ago at a show ,it was said to be “cool” by some / or a singer. Now we will hear that the Police cleaning the area while some even head for the graveyards.
    I guess it go down as, “if i can’t sell it, i am going to sit on it”.

    A life loss, is a life loss, no matter what the business was. May she rest in peace. Too much violence

      KINGSTON, Jamaica – Regional news reports are suggesting that a Jamaican woman was fatally stabbed by another Jamaican woman in Barbados this morning.
      According to media reports, the two women were involved in a fight around 2:30 am at Jemmotts Lane, St Michael, which left one of them nursing stab wounds.

      The injured woman was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital where she died. It is understood that the women had an ongoing disagreement, according to a resident who spoke to NATION Online on condition of anonymity.

      People who say they witnessed the incident reported that both women were friends, and the deceased, whose correct name has not been released but is known as ‘Peppa’, was in the Caribbean island for only a week.

    Hey, the ladies went to Church at St.Patricks Roman Catholic Cathedral to worship and pay homage to Mary the Mother of Jesus. THEY ARE NOT LADIES OF THE NIGHT, THEY WERE ANGELS OF THE MORNING AT APPROX 2:30AM.

  28. Tiana April 28, 2017 at 11:59 pm

    Sorry for another life lost to violence
    It doesn’t matter what kind of work the ladies does violence is violence
    Most Caribbean people don’t like jamaicans for what the cases maybe
    Instead of smashing Jamaicans try and get to know them
    Every country have prostitutes and bad people not only jamaicans so stop judging the books
    If jamaicans wasn’t as charming as they are these other country ladies wouldn’t be so afraid of them
    They are good at what they do
    What ever they do God still love them cause they try to find a way out nuff of these girls have education that me and you don’t have
    She want to go college or UWI but can’t afford it
    I watch a testimony the other day with a girl that was a prostitute and it brought tears to my eyes it’s either suicide or she hit the clubs and she did hit the clubs and now she’s a very successful lawyer so don’t judge a person if you don’t know them
    As long as they aint stealing anything

    @Tara Lee Douse

    Be quiet. In England Jamaicans are notorious for crime murder and violence – worldwide too. That’s why the UK banned Jamaicans some 12 years ago to enter the UK freely – and you know it so why you talking like the down cry towards Jamaicans is new to you. Oh boy!

    I only feel sorry for the 2 percent that are not violent people.

  30. Inches April 29, 2017 at 12:28 pm

    Freedom of speech….everyone has a right to there own opinion…if some don’t like what others have to say just move on..
